Usually what happens when you're faced with a challenge and/or tough decision, your ego attempts to keep you in safe by suggesting you make the most comfortable decisions within your comfort zone.
The problem is that when you're working towards achieving a goal you've never achieved before, you will be required to take actions you've never taken before.
You need to be aware that your ego is very powerful and it will do everything in its power to keep you in your comfort zone and away from harm. However, you also need to be aware that if you want to achieve the extraordinary you will have to go against your ego and do the exact opposite of what your ego suggests.
Successful people tend to be known for their discipline, their ability to take risks, and their fearlessness. There is a reason for that. Successful people are able to put their ego in check and even engage in self-deprecation because they don't take themselves too seriously.
Your ego is literally designed to prevent success outside of survival. So, if you're ambitious and you want to achieve goals outside of the norm, you will need to break free from your ego.
Breaking free from your ego is very difficult especially if you've never done it before, but when you do break free from your ego, you will experience a sense of freedom that you've never felt in a long-time.
